P (power)
_______________________

I(amps) x E(voltage)

Simple delta equation. Use 2 known to find one unknown value. The horizontal line represents divide if you forgot the basic math.

Power

Power = voltage x current or watts

Search Ohms law for more detailed equations.

Divide your total watts by the voltage. example: 1200 watt hair dryer operating at 120 volts, 1200 divided by 120 equals 10 amps. And I like all kinds of pie.
